(Posted Posted November 26, 2014)

We were all shocked by the recent beheadings of James Foley and Steven Sotloff. The daily news of brutality and death sentences that people are inflicting on others because they do not believe the same way is shocking!

We have all seen news about celebrities and their scandals; Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus to name a few. Recently, actors Bill Cosby and Steven Collins, who played respectable fathers in regular sitcoms, sitcoms that I watched, are now the latest to be embroiled in scandal.

by Steven Britt
(Posted Posted November 18, 2014)

Modern psychology has shown that our attitude can influence our perception of events, places, people and their motives--everything we experience!

by Victor Kubik
(Posted Posted November 13, 2014)

If you're like me, it's altogether too easy to allow distractions. If I'm not focused, my mind can wander. How do we avoid that and offer up powerful prayers that "avail much"? (James:5:16).
